Dubai Death: Superbike Racer Emmett Bailed
Former Superbike racer Sean Emmett, whose wife died in Dubai while the couple were on their honeymoon, has been released on bail after being arrested on his return to the UK.
Mr Emmett, 43, had his passport given back to him by officials in the United Arab Emirates months after the conclusion of an investigation into the death of his wife Abbie.
He flew back to the UK from Dubai on Thursday and was immediately arrested.
The sportsman was later released on bail until a date in March, Surrey Police said.
Mrs Emmett, 27, died in February after falling several floors from a high-rise hotel.
Surrey Police said on Thursday: "A 43-year-old man has today been arrested by Surrey Police officers at Heathrow Airport in connection with the death of Surrey resident Abigail Emmett, nee Elson, in Dubai in February 2013."
Mr Emmett had been stranded in the Gulf state since his passport was handed to officials during the investigation.
Before his arrest, he posted a picture of his newly-returned passport on Twitter, describing it as the "best early Xmas pressie ever".
He later tweeted: "Thanks to everyone for all your messages, my phone's melting!! Flight booked and I'll be landing in Blighty 7.10 tmrw. #bringonthecold."
Mr Emmett last month sent a message of thanks to supporters on Twitter, saying: "Just want to thank each and every one of you that has helped me with support, financial or otherwise. I don't even have contacts for some!"
